Happy November, Ya’ll! Can you believe it?
I thought I’d show you how I celebrated my Halloween, especially since I’m really happy with how this costume turned out. Not only was this year the first year that I did a trunk or treat, it was also my first couples costume! Allow me to introduce: Claire and Owen from Jurassic World!
If you haven’t seen the movie, here’s how they look:
This costume was much less stressful than last year’s costume, and I got to work on it with my boyfriend, which was really cool. I was afraid he wasn’t going to be on board, but he ended up doing more research than me! I also liked that I will be able to incorporate pieces from the costume into my regular wardrobe, because if we’re being honest(and at this point, why not?), I really just wanted to justify buying nude heels. This costume was more about compiling pieces than making them, which was nice for once. I still had to take in the waist of the skirt and trim the wig, but overall, it was a very easy costume.
Here’s the breakdown for Claire:
Shirt: Charming Charlie
Skirt: Banana Republic via Ebay
Necklace: Charming Charlie
And for Owen:
Shirt: Amazon, Colombia Men’s Tamiami II Long-Sleeve Shirt in Blue Heron [A note on the shirt: These shirts run BIG! We ended up needing to get a size small for my 6’2″, not-a-size-small man.]
Watch: Casio G-Shock via Ebay
I ended up having a ton of fun putting together and wearing this costume. A lot of adult didn’t recognize the costumes, but a fair amount of kids (and an even larger amount of teens) did. Of course, now that Halloween is over I’m already making plans for next year; but then the planning is my favorite part.
What about you? Any costumes you were especially proud of this year? I’d love to hear about them!
